David Okwii, the Editor-In-Chief of Dignited and one of the brains behind Storipot said:
“There is a lot of great content that is published every day by mainstream media houses and more recently bloggers. However, it is increasingly difficult to keep track of great stories because of the ‘noise’ generated by social media and millions of sites on the web”
The hunt of all Ugandan blogs began almost three months ago with a crowdsourcing campaign on social media especially twitter with the hashtag #256blogs and , the real gist behind storipot is to develop a community of keen bloggers who submitted their blogs to the aggregator.
The project manager of Storipot said:
“There’s a growing community of bloggers in Uganda who are increasingly churning out great local content. However, this content often goes unnoticed because of their small distribution channels and growing ‘noise’ on the web. We hope to solve this with storipot. “
